• It's simply the story of two kids who fall in love in a city in the middle of a water shortage. URINETOWN has triumphed as Broadway's unexpected phenomenon: the winner of the 2002 Tony Awards® Triple Crown for Best Direction, Best Book and Best Music and Lyrics! This musical comedy tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a city where water is worth its weight in gold has been hailed by Entertainment Weekly as "fresh, exuberant and even moving - somewhere beyond the sublime and beyond the ridiculous." A show that both celebrates and spoofs the best of Broadway traditions, the New York Times calls it "a great musical - extraordinary, hilarious, and entirely original. It is simply the most galvanizing theatre experience in town. And did I mention that URINETOWN is hilarious?"

    The New Yorker in turn declares, "Of course, you’re not supposed to like the title - that’s part of the big, good natured and remarkably successful joke that is URINETOWN. [It is] a terrifically spirited send-up of musicals and their conventions."

    URINETOWN: THE COMEDY MUSICAL is a satire. Starting with an absurd, exaggerated premise - that all the toilets in a city are controlled by one greedy corporation - the show makes us laugh while it explores real social issues of corporate control, corruption, environmental conservation and the growing divide between rich and poor. But it also parodies those "do-gooders" who try to make societal change happen without thinking things through. The New York Post says it best when it calls URINETOWN, "sheer fun! A wild and happy mix of biting satire and loving parody. It’s a wonderful show!"

    Finally the San Francisco Chronicle sums it up nicely when it calls URINETOWN, "the happiest musical in town, bubbling over with exuberant musical nods to everything from Three Penny Opera and West Side Story, to Guys and Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof and Cabaret! One of the most original musicals in a long time."
    Urinetown- The Musical has been presented only twice in Colorado since it was written in 2001.
